BASKET-WEAVE DISH

Late 19th or early 20th century h.: 5.5 cm
d. (rim): 24.5 cm d. (base): 14.8 cm

A shallow, circular basket-weave dish with an everted and undulating rim. Red earthenware with a monochrome brownish green glaze. The bottom displays a relief of three birds in flight, one smaller than the others, while braids in relief run around the rim, and are punctuated by six rosettes. As in most other basket-weave vessels, the foot is of twisted clay, and the base is also glazed.
